What Are You Packing for The Rapture this Saturday
Posted by Cheryl Pieters (+481) 11 years ago
If some of you are as saintly as you say you are in your posts on milescity.com, you are not going to be around for the Bucking Horse Sale...

The Judgement Day is May 21, 2011!!

http://www.aolnews.com/20...ay-predic/

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, former civil engineer Harold Camping is one of the leading voices of the doomsday movement. After doing some number crunching based on biblical figures, Camping has apparently come up with a new and improved expiration date for the human race: May 21, 2011. Camping previously thought that the world was going to end on Sept. 6, 1994, but discovered that he had made a mathematical error.

"A lot of times these prophecies gain traction when difficulties are happening in society," she told NPR. "Right now, there's a lot of insecurity, and this is a promise that says it's not all random, it's part of God's plan."

Still, according to Rapture doctrine, most people will barely notice that Judgment Day has gone by. That's because May 21 is, according to Camping, the day when only the righteous will be saved and taken to heaven. Everyone else, on the other hand, will have to remain on Earth for a period of torment. The real fire and brimstone show, Camping further predicts, will get under way in October

So you're telling me I won't have anyone in white shirts with pamphlets knocking on my door after Saturday because they will have all gone away?

I've said it before, but nothing brings down a good religious leader like end of the world date prediction. Learn from the mistakes of the past people.

One can only hope; along with the people who bomb Abortion Clinics, kill Doctors that specialize in Women's Health, spread hatred and lies about homosexuals and people from other religions.....come to think of it-I would be pretty bummed if I were sucked up into a "Heaven" filled with those people

If I WAS going to be raptured Saturday (I mean, I asked Jesus into my heart like 7 years ago, does that still count me? I wonder which version of events is right, and if denying his existence voids my membership into the holy gates club?) I would bring condoms. I plan on being a heathen up there while God unleashes his fury on earth. He will be too occupied with earthly things to notice I'm making my way around the college football team and their cheerleaders.

In the words of your greatness Nancy Grace, I'd also bring "booze and hotpants"

I think I would have to pack my iPod, filled with Harp Music, because I don't play the Harp very well.

...that is assuming I am not disqualified for feeling that ALL religions that teach a docterine of love, service to mankind, kindness to animals and acceptance are valid and should be respected...however, I imagine that is not the definition of "righteous" so I will probably still be here Sunday Morning .

If anyone names the date, they don't know the bible!

(KJV) Matthew 24:36-42 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as in the days of Noah were so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (the next section refers to the rapture) Then two shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore (be ready): for you know not what hour your Lord will come.
(NIV) I Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ (Christians who have died) will rise first. After that, we (those who are born again) who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
(NIV) I Thessalonians 5:1-3 Now brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

Search for yourself, http://www.biblegateway.com/

Also, I heard a teaching (but can't find the scripture, sorry): "When Israel becomes a nation again (which was1947-48) that generation (bible generation is estimated around 40 years, so those born between 1940-80) shall not pass away before Jesus comes again" .....
If the other 90% of prophesies in the bible have been 100% accurate, makes you lean toward thinking, the rest will be accurate. What if God is really real... it's something to think about...........

I hope some of you will care enough to do research, and not just make stupid comments

One last thing, your NIV bible is crap that reads like the lyrics to a Rihanna song (and Rihanna songs are dumb).

And to answer the question, I've been sleeping in my looting togs. I will be ready.

Well I hope we do get a lot of stupid comments. As far as I can tell that's the primary intent of this forum. I have yet to find a more hilarious website. Great fun is had here, in between occasional serious conjecture and laudable efforts at amateur comedy.
So in case this is my last entry here, thanks everyone for all you've done, been great knowing you, see most of you on the other side. For everybody staying behind, well you know, good luck, work hard, don't take any wooden nickels, keep the pointy end forward, always wear a helmet, keep a clean nose and a tight butt.

We are to assume then, Jeff, that you will be raptured and the rest of us will be left behind?

In that case, I'm not paying my Visa bill yet because I really don't think I'm going to care about my credit score during the great Tribulation. Did I just hear a trumpet?

If YOU did the research, you'd probably come to the same conclusion as I did. God did NOT write the bible, and people make mistakes. With how many times the bible has been rewrote, argued over, and translated we can be 90% sure it has AT LEAST 23 innaccturate prophecies. Remember, biblical prophecies are manmade.

Right now, I prefer to bring up the fact that Buck is insulting Rihanna(well at least her songs). While I don't particularly like RiRi, I can say that I agree with her when she says "Chains and whips excite me!" S&M is NEVER dumb.

Let's party like the world's ending Saturday and continue partying when it doesn't.

Have a Great Bucking Horse Sale Weekend! (or at least until the point where you or the person you are dancing with suddenly disappear!)

PS-As to the whole Bible thing, it was put together during the Council of Nicea under The Emperor Constantine, a former Pagan who converted to Chrisianity after he won a battle which he "offered up to the Christian God". Whole sections of the Biblical Scrolls were voted on by a council of Christian Bishops as to whether or not they suited their Christian Agenda (read "Political"), and many were left out arbitrarily because it didn't help their "cause"(which seemed to be geting people under their control b holdin religion over their heads). The section that explains how Adam and Eve cold beget the whole human race was left out because the Council didn't want early Cristians to think incest was OK. So, taking the Bible literally is not very wise. If you did so, you would think it was OK to sell your daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7....

The United States Government, through the Center of Disease Control, issues guidance for preparing for a zombie apocalypse earlier this week.

This guidance comes out 5 days before the Rapture, so the rest of less behind can be prepared. Coincidence? I think not.

What a beautiful spring day here in the Flathead Valley. Sorry your BHS is so wet.
I'm thinking about changing my mind about the whole rapture thing. I was okay with it, had everything ready. But I've decided maybe I like it here. I don't wanna go anywhere. Is that okay to do?
